According to WKBW, local woman Laura Kagels will soon open a petting zoo called "Niagara County Down Under" that features kangaroos at her property.

Kagels owns 12 kangaroos! The animals are bottle-fed and kept indoors until they're old enough. There's a heated barn that they stay in once they're older.

Eight-foot high fences will be built on a two-acre site and Kagels wants people to enjoy the love of kangaroos as much as she does.

"We're going to allow people right in with them, right into their habitat, you can sit here like i am, hold the the babies, feed the babies," said Kagels.

Before the petting zoo can happen though, she'll need to get insurance. The petting zoo will have private tours, instead of a typical 9-5 schedule. The hope is to have it open by late spring.
